The NFL is highlighting its Inspire Change social justice initiative. The league has awarded funding to four national grant partners: Year Up, Wall Street Bound, Free Minds Book Club, and Get Schooled.
“The grants continue to allow the NFL and the players to really continue serving in the communities they either come from or currently live in and the grassroots organizations that are doing the work on the ground.
It’s been a joy of mine to be a part of some of these meetings and be able to look at the applications that we get every year and that we get to review. And it’s been an honor just to be able to make grants to organizations that we know are making an impact.
